  4. mVET Definition: The application of Mobile Technology to reduce mortality in Homeless Vets

  5. Frequency of Veterans in US = 9% • Frequency of Veterans in Homeless = 20%

  6. Life Expectancy United States

  7. 2002-2012 • 6138 Soldiers died in Iraq and Afghanistan • 25,000 Homeless vets died on the streets of NY, Washington, LA, etc.

  8. Preventable causes of death • Injuries • Drug overdose • CHD • Exposure • Murder/Suicide

  9. mVET Mission • To Reduce homeless VA mortality by 50%

  10. Differences in approaches • VA = Finding shelter for homeless vet • mVET= Reducing mortality in half Find shelter is not the same as reducing mortality

  11. Universal Mobile Access for Home Vets Give every homeless vet a cell phone

  12. Home

  13. mVET • Provide free cell phone to all homeless vets • Use existing call centers from the VA and EMS as life lines • Develop life line apps • 911 for emergencies and location

  14. Problem in next 5 years • 1 million returning from Iraq and Afghanistan • 50,000 becoming homeless • Tripling number of women and their children homeless • Major increase in Native Americans on the streets

  15. Women Veterans and their children • In 5 years 3 times more women Vets and children on street • Average age of death = 41, 40 years less then than other women American • Estimated 1.5 million homeless children, not known how many are children of Veterans • 20% chance of being raped each year • On streets primarily because of abusive relations

  16. What if we do not try to stop the premature mortality • Surge to ~180,000 homeless vets in 5 years • 25,000 homeless vets will die, with women especially vulnerable • Probably ½ of these death can be prevented

  17. + 250 Minutes per Month 180,000 Homeless Vets by 2017

  18. Steps • Build mVET network • Obtain 180,000 telephone • Establish VA distribution system • Develop Point of Contact • Coordinate, Monitor Mortality and Evaluate

  19. Cost to VA • Build mVET network 1,500 Members cost to VA = $0.00 • Obtain 180,000 telephone $50 x 180,000 = $9,000,000, cost to VA = $0.00 • Establish VA distribution system through exisiting homeless coordinators cost to VA = $0.00? • Develop Point of Contact with existing call centers cost to VA = $0.00 (?) • Coordinate, Monitor Mortality and Evaluate, cost to VA = $1,000,000/yr

  20. 180,000 Homeless Vets in 5 year • 25,000 deaths in 5 years • 12,500 preventable deaths • Additional cost to VA, $5,000,000 in 5 years • Cost to VA per life saved = $500
